Get FREE in '23!

How free do you want to be?

~ What will you do differently in 2023?

~ Have you paused to consider 2022 - to assess what's working and what isn't?

~ Are you focused on the year's final digit changing and the "fresh start" on the calendar rather than evaluating how you will freshen or restart the things you want to change?

~ Does it feel as though you're hurtling through the end of 2022 - rushing into the New Year fueled by trepidation about the economy, politics, and international affairs?

~ Will you write the usual New Year's goals (eat better, exercise more, blah blah) you always write? 

What if, this year, you did something radically different?

What if, instead of writing the usual goals, this year you took just 60 minutes to DREAM?

This is NOT your typical goal-setting session

It is an invitation to dream.

What is your dreamscape?

When was the last time you allowed yourself to dream?
What do you truly want to create in your life?
Does your current reality align with your highest values?

Hi there! My name is Lily Shanks, and I'm a "recovering attorney," among other things.


When I was little, I didn't dream about being an attorney. But I entered law school in 2003.  Even then, I didn't dream about working as an associate at a Big Law firm. But that's what I became in 2006.  In fact, I spent the first 40 years of my life checking off the boxes on someone else’s so-called "successful" life list.  

I successfully: 

~ Made the dean's list throughout college,

~ Graduated with honors from a top-tier law school,

~ Worked for a Big Law firm,

~ Made lots of money,

~ Bought a new car,

~ Bought a house, and

~ Bought all the shoes (see fancy shoes in photo).

Checking the above boxes felt good, but only fleetingly.  I was out of touch with my truest self and the dreams that would light up my soul.  I was not healthy.  I did not value myself.  I was disconnected, misaligned, and disengaged.  As a result, I checked a lot of not-so-good boxes.  


Among other things, I:

~ Developed disordered eating habits,

~ Abused alcohol, and

~ Binge-shopped.

I recognized that something needed to change, so year after year, I set the typical New Year’s goals.  I promised myself that I would: 

~ Eat better,

~ Exercise more,

~ Drink less,

~ Spend less, and

~ Save more.

Year after year, I failed.  I stopped setting resolutions and goals because I didn't believe in them.  I didn't believe in myself.

Finally, I allowed myself to dream. 

For years, I felt unengaged, unfulfilled, and lifeless.  I was so out of touch with what was best for ME that it took some major shaking up to identify my truest desires and dreams.


But once I started dreaming again - charting the path that felt right for ME - BOOM!  I’m here to tell you that you can make your dreams reality and create your own course.


I got sober. I worked hard to create my own successful coaching business. I stopped listening to what everyone else said I “should” do and playing it safe.  And it all started with reconnecting with my dreams.


Now I want to help you do just the same. 


On January 1st, 2023, gift yourself with the Freedom to DREAM.

Where are you?  Are you sitting at your desk DAYDREAMING about what life would be like if you had followed your dreams from the start?  Do you dream of starting over in a new career, town, or lifestyle?  Or have you forgotten how to dream?  Do you not know what you want - you just know that what you have isn’t working?


Wherever you are, I invite you to join me on January 1st, 2023, in a unique, soul-centered, values-aligned, Dream-Scaping session.  We’ll uncover your deepest desires and chart your steps toward making your dreams into reality.


Join me in saying goodbye 👋 to 2022 and setting yourself up for freedom ✨ in 2023. 


What could you achieve next year if you slowed down and allowed yourself to DREAM?
